Gunmen Open Fire in College Cafeteria in Montreal Canada

Via Fox News and Breaking Now with live updates....Developing as I publish this.....

MONTREAL — At least one gunman opened fire Wednesday in the cafeteria of a Montreal college and wounded an unknown number of people, witnesses and police said.
Dozens of students at Dawson College near downtown fled into the surrounding streets after the shooting broke out in the school of about 10,000.
Martine Millette of the Montreal police said authorities did not know how many people had been shot. There also was uncertainty if there was more than one gunman.
Millette said the man later shot himself. Constable Philippe Gouin said "in all probability, the suspect has committed suicide."
Canada's CTV network reported that two suspected gunmen were involved in the shooting that left three people in critical condition. Citing government sources, the network reported that one suspect was shot by police and the other took his own life.
Student Devansh Smri Vastava said he saw a man in military fatigues storm the school's cafeteria and that he heard about 20 shots fired. [read more]
